Just when a fasting government officer in Maharashtra’s Vidhan Bhavan canteen in Mumbai found chicken pieces in his vegetarian dish yesterday, cow dung was found in a patient’s food in Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) at Nagpur.
As per reports, Umesh Pawar, a resident of Chandrapur, was being treated at the GMC since more than a week. GMC had provided Umesh with palak dal, rice and rotis. While having the same for his dinner along with his wife Kaushalya last evening, Umesh realised that he had consumed cow dung that was present in the food. After complaining about the same to the GMC staff, the food samples were taken for inspection.
Congress MLA Vijay Wadettiwar in the Lower House today raised the issue of cow dung being found in the food, to which Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis assured that it was a serious issue and the guilty would be suspended.
